With a hull design featuring specs of 18’ x 21.25”, the V8 is unique in its class. Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski that most kayakers should be able to hop right onto and paddle off. The deck features all the surfski simplicity of the V10 and V12, the main components being a fully adjustable footbrace and rear deck bungees. The V8 also incorporates some new features that add to its user friendly appeal: molded in bow & stern carry handles, and a water bottle holder in the cockpit. The Epic bailer, breather tube and Epic surfski rudder configurations are standard. Our goal with the V8 is to provide a boat that bridges the gap between sea kayaks and surfskis. By blending speed, high stability and a performance oriented deck & outfitting, the V8 offers new levels of accessibility and opportunity. Fitness paddlers and racers who want extra emphasis on stability, touring kayakers looking to make the transition to high performance surfskis, or cruisers looking for a simple, efficient boat for a day on the water. The V8 will take you there.
